USA - Change in the Air

Posted: 05 Feb 2001

Though accounting for just four per cent of the world's population, the gas-guzzling United States produces close to a quarter of the world's greenhouse gases. Unsurprisingly it is the target of bitter criticism from other nations that claim they are adhering to the Kyoto targets.

US legislators and many voters in 'Fortress America' don't seem to care. However, that indifference may change. The United States is preparing to publish the most comprehensive scientific survey ever into the impacts of climate change. Benefiting from advance knowledge of the report's findings, Earth Report travels throughout the US - from the dying pine forests of Alaska to cyclone-savaged Florida - to examine the link between unwanted environmental changes and pollution.
